Lovely Embossing!

Our new challenge at One Stitch At A Time this week is Anything Goes With Embossing.

Well, I just love getting my embossing folders out and having a play. I found my Couture Creation embossing folder and used this as the base for my image. This shoe image comes from a beautiful set of 4 designed by Ike and you can find them here. I know you will love this set as much as I do and check out the previous weeks blog posting where another of my teamies, Nikkie  has used one of them in a fabulous way. Enter our easy competition and you could win a $10 voucher to use in the store.

I've coloured the image with various pinks and green Promarkers and cut the oval with the centre die from Heartfelt Creations Eyelet Ovals. The outer die cut is from the same set and matches perfectly, these can be bought easily on the internet now. Lots of pearls and some Wild Orchid Crafts to finish.

Happy Mothers Day

A bittersweet day for me without Paul but joy in the children and grandchildren I have. I dedicate this blog post to all those without their Mums, sons and daughters.

Our challenge this week is Anything Goes With Fancy Borders. For my image I chose to use Delightful Daisies and I've coloured my image with several Promarkers. I used one of the brackets from Spellbinders Brackets One to create the cut out border and then used a yellow ink pad by Marvy for the edges.  The tiny flowers are from a die by Sue Wilson called Cornflower and go perfectly with one of my Cheery Lynn strip dies.

Please pop over to our blog here and see the other fabulous creations from my teamies and enter into our challenge.
